Hello and Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was a great mix of things and it has left me feeling restored and recharged for the week ahead.

We had a lovely Friday night at home. I love our routine of snacks for dinner as we enjoy a cocktail or beer and catch up on the week.

Saturday was a rainy day, great for reading and doing a few chores. In the evening we went out for dinner with my cousins, Len and Peg. We haven’t done that for quite a while and it was fun to catch up with them and try out a new restaurant, too.

Sunday morning found me in the kitchen making vetebullar . . . cardamom cinnamon rolls. They look impressive but they were pretty straightforward to make for anyone with experience with sweet dough. And they were so delicious! I made them using a recipe from the book Fika: The Art of The Swedish Coffee Break and I am really enjoying learning more about the practice of fika in Sweden and trying to incorporate that as well as mysig into our daily life.

I did some yoga and reading, cut my first daffodil bouquet of the season, and made a delicious pot roast for dinner.

Of course there were plenty of snuggles with these guys, too.

And here we are. Let’s make it a good week, mmmkay?

  1. Everything looks so tasty (except Fred and George – they just look cute). I think I have read or heard about that cookbook (Swedish Coffee Break) and those buns look so yummy. I also love the idea of “mysig” which I had never heard of. Wonderful weekend Carole!!

  2. That looks like a fantastic weekend (and yikes! it’s closer to the next one than the last one now!!) … I hope you’ll be sharing more about mysig – those Swedes know things about living well, don’t they?!

  3. I made cardamom buns last weekend too. It was King Arthur’s recipe of the week. They were exactly how we remember from trips to Sweden. Fika really is a fantastic ritual. We had a lot of buns and ice cream!
